    I haven’t posted on Contractor Talk forums in years and they never bothered to email me about anything.
    Now, all of a sudden, I get this weird email titled ‘Contractor Talk is your forum, so stop by and speak up!’

    Got me to thinking. I wonder if a lot of their members stopped posting lately due to coming here to BTP??

    That’s the only thing I can think of. Anyone else get this email?

    If Contractor Talk traffic is indeed slowing down, they will most likely be at risk with their sponsors, I would think…

    It’s not slowing down, I assure you.

    They seem to have tons of posters there. I see no decline.

    I got that email from them yesterday to and I thought the same thing. Because I haven’t posted their in a while and they never sent an email before.

    Its been a while for me. I mostly just reads some stuff there. no email though

    I got the email and still regularly post. They were bought from Nathan a while back so the new guys are just rolling out changes.

    I don’t think it’s slowing down, but I do think it’s lower quality than it used to be.

    I recently became and member there and have read a few things and here and there…. so I don’t think it is anything other than a push for more people to post more often… I wouldn’t read much more into it probably.

    Probably just coincidental timing

    I got the same email.

    Lots of forums do this. They know what members are not active and send a little reminder to say come back and join. Most of the forums that I get these from are BIG and have a dependency on ad revenue.

    I also received the same email. My posting over there has certainly gone down since I started posting on this site. This forum stuff takes a lot of time to read through topics. There are so many subforums at CT that I have never even peeked in.

    I got the same email and don’t post much there. Probably just a yearly thing they send out or something.

    I still visit daily there. There is a lot of repetition over there. I would say my posting has slowed since joining here, but I like it here better.

    I wouldn’t read into anything. I just got an email from jeepforum with the same kind of message.

    To stay and post? No.

    To leave and join here? Yes, since the new owners….(laughing!)

    It seems like people get in pissing matches over there about everything and over here is a lot friendlier.

    the emails started after nathan sold ct and angus started remodelers zone. yes there is quite a bit of stupid stuff over there but its usually do to people not following the rules.. that page is for contractors only not diyers and homeowners.. there have been countless diyers and h.os trying to pose as contractors to fish for information on pricing and legal stuff.

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    #116546

    I never minded a DIYer asking a simple question, but the ones that would pose as a contractor when clearly from their question they weren’t always got to me. Or worse, the ones that were trying to get info so they could flame their current contractor.
